    Just bought my 2011 Taco TRD Sport a few months ago, thinking about some upgrades... My first thought is some new tires, maybe some MTs. Any other opinions or recommendations on tires?

    Yeah, I gots boost
    What do you plan to do with the truck as far as the use of the tires is concerned? I mean if you drive 1.5 hours to work every day and offroad twice a year... MT tires don't make sense. Let us know your intended use first, and we can guide you from there.

    Welcome :wave:

    Well unfortunately i don't get to drive the truck to work everyday as i travel for a living. The upside to this is I get to rag out rental cars all day. The truck is more of a toy for when I do get some time off at home. I am a big outdoorsman, i ride dirt bikes, hunt, fish, etc. So some sort of AT would be very practical, and MTs obviously look the meanest. Really the sky is the limit with this bad boy. I really want the TRD supercharger as well..
